Anyone else having trouble uploading an avatar? Mine disappeared sometime yesterday (probably in the server move) but every time I try to replace it, I get this message: "The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved."

I've tried converting my avatar to a few file types (jpeg, png, gif) and it doesn't seem to make a difference. Any thoughts?

...really?! Huh. I can't see it. And apparently, I can't change it either? Odd.

I can't see your avatar, Varda (Varda avatar: aVardar?) and I can't see mine either.

I don't see mine or BenjaminJB's, but I see Scattercat's and Fenrix's.

(This is starting to sound like a logic problem. "If Varda can see Scattercat's and Fenrix's avatar, but not Benjaminjb's, and Fenrix can see Scattercat's and Ben's but not Varda's, and Ben can't see anyone's... which train will pull into the station first?")

This was a legitimate laugh-out-loud moment for me! Cheesy By the way, I can see the same combination of avatars as Varda can, but cannot see my own.

... then who is sitting to the left of Varda?

And what color is the bear?

Depends. Which Varda? The air-bending aVardar, or the Sith Lord Darth Vardar?

Maybe I came in late, but I can't see Varda's, Ben's, or my own.

Also, my shirt is green.

There's a penguin in a green shirt on the 8 o'clock track, isn't there?

(Thanks, Kibitzer. Smiley )

Crap. I couldn't see mine, so I loaded a new avatar.

I might have to load a new new avatar.

Hello again folks. Our support staff think they've identified and fixed the problem. Everything should be back to normal, but please let us know if there's any more weirdness.

Woot! Thanks, Kibitzer! I re-uploaded my avatar, and it is now staring back at me in an obviously green shirt. Smiley The bear walking by to the south appears to be a bugbear.

I can see everyone's avatar now. It helped once I realized that "flour" sounds like "flower" and that's how I caught the thief.

@Devoted - I don't see yours either, but maybe just try re-uploading it now?

Yeah, I've actually tried to re-upload it several times and something is going wrong somewhere. Is there an unspecified file size limit?

Profile -> Forum Profile Info -> "I will upload my own picture" -> Browse, select my image -> Save Profile

Then, when the page reloads it reverts to saying "no file selected" where my image name had been once I selected it. Huh

Could you give it another try Devoted? Some more settings have been tweaked.

I seem to be getting the same results, but I appreciate you looking into it! Just a head's up that I'm out of town this week so I'll try and check in but it'll be pretty sporadic.

I used one that was saved to my desktop at the time, and followed the steps I said just a few posts up. The key for me turned out to be making sure it wasn't too large a file. Less than 100kb, if memory serves.
